I was just wondering, is there anything wrong with someone who isn't gluten-intolerent going without gluten? Is it an essential ingredient? It's just wheat protein, and there are plenty of alternative sources of plant protein, like corn and beans.
The problem is not missing the gluten itself- it is missing other nutrients, fiber, etc that you lose when avoiding gluten. We tried a low/no gluten diet for a while (looking to reduce inflammation), including gf baking. We found a big difference with gf flours, even self-mixed, tend to be very high in starch and low in fiber (to try to get a good rise). Can be constipating.
Also, the easiest way to avoid gluten is to avoid grains and grain - based products, but that also means you are missing out on certain B vitamins and some other nutrients (don't have my research to hand).
It is all replaceable, but you do have to pay attention and sometimes your dietary replacements are missing things you would not think about - so it takes a lot of self-education. Basically, any massive restriction in your diet means you are losing the advantages of variety, and have to work to get all your bases covered.
Personally, I would want all my options open with a baby/little kid in the house - just to make sure they are getting as much variety as possible.
Good luck, OP! I know your health is worth it, you'll do a great job, and I hope you will be feeling much better soon!
